Egg Producer Will Pay Millions In Fines
(Undated) — One of the nation’s largest egg producers is going to pay almost seven-million dollars in fines. Quality Egg of Iowa is expected to plead guilty today to charges of bribing a U.S. Department of Agriculture inspector. The bribe was intended to allow the company to sell poor quality eggs and misbranded eggs. That led to a nationwide salmonella outbreak in 2010.
